Hello readers, this is my first analysis ever. Since my analysis is coming from the viewpoint of a diva, I have decided to call it my deevanalysis.
When I started blogging actively on September 4, 2012, I didn’t know how it would turn out; but when I got over 3000 hits in 10 days, I knew I must be doing something right. As at the time of filing this analysis, I’ve had a total of 11,898 hits in 26 days. I have you all to thank for that and I sincerely appreciate your frequent visits.
I want to specially acknowledge LeslieCarter for her regular likes on my blog posts and also Cristian Mihai and Patrick Latter for following my blog and liking my posts. That means a whole lot coming from great writers like you.

I also wish to acknowledge my top seven frequent commentators: 1) Funmi 2) Tyyneee 3) Kaskae1 4) S. A. Udo 5) Chineze 6) Omenka Egbuta and 7) Dunstan Ukaga. You make my blog come alive, thanks. By the way, Funmi, you made the most comments for September, 2012. 🙂
I thought it wise to come up with an analysis at the end of every month to recap all the posts which trended the most on my blog for that month. I also needed to respond to your comments and interact with you readers without interrupting the flow of your comments.
From my blog statistics, it’s easy to draw out the top 10 topics which got people viewing and talking the most. They are the ones from which I shall always draw my Deevanalysis.
1. Kate Middleton:
This topic trended the most on my blog, so much that I had to create a special category for it which I tagged “DUCHESS UPDATES”. I guess what made a lot of people take note of it was when I got really upset that some people chose to publish the Duchess’ nude photos when it was generally agreed that we would not help circulate the handiwork of an unscrupulous photographer. Also I had a few strong words for Piers Morgan in response to his comments and opinion about the matter.
This got the attention of The Huffington Post, UK and also of Daniel Mayes, a Photo Journalist with Sky News.
They both cited my post as related articles to what they had reported about the leakage of Kate Middleton’s topless photos.
This was a high point for me and I thank them very much.
2. The Billionaire’s Lesbian Daughter, Gigi Chao:
Lol!! This story showed me how desperate our young bachelors could get. This post got almost as much views as the Duchess story. With the young men pitching their positive attributes to me like I was the official matchmaker. 🙂
3. Domestic Violence:
The month of September also saw a lot of incidences of domestic violence. From the husband who poured boiling water on his wife because she dared to confront him about his affair with a 17-year old girl; to the 8-year old girl who poured boiling water on her housemaid’s back because the maid didn’t prepare her meal on time; to the husband who plucked out his wife’s eye in a moment of rage; to the jealous girlfriend who poured acid on her boyfriends genitals; to the man who threw a hot stove and a pot of boiling water on his wife, and the most bizarre of all- the man who was caught with his dead 3-year old son stuffed in a suitcase.
These evil acts of violence were inflicted on all these victims by their loved ones. Who then should a person to trust? A stranger or a loved one?
4. Cynthia Okosogu:
This poor girl who was senselessly killed by friends she trusted. May her soul rest in peace, as justice for her death is served.
5. Strange sightings- Horse baby, Goat baby, Strange Beast:
September also recorded a lot of strange and bizarre events in Nigeria as a woman gave birth to a pony in Edo State, another woman gave birth to a half-goat, half-human in Jigawa State and a strange beast was claimed to have been killed at Madonna University in Anambra State. What can I say? There were no concrete scientific explanations for these happenings and at the time, I seriously wondered if I should report it or not. It’s a very strange world we live in.
6. N5000 Note:
The introduction of this new note caused so much controversy with the CBN Governor, Lamido Sanusi calling former President Olusegun Obasanjo “a good farmer but a bad economist.” 🙂 Thank God, it finally died a natural death as President Jonathan threw the idea in the trash.
7. Boko Haram:
This month brought us favourable news about this Islamic sect terrorist group as, the Joint Task Force dealt them many blows, uncovering their secret hideouts and killing their commander and ‘Accountant’; two key players in the terrorist group. The JTF also arrested many of Boko Harams Member making our nation breathe a few moments of peace.
8. Ugochukwu Ozuah:
Another senseless killing of a man married only for five days only to be shot by drunken men wearing Nigerian Police uniform in a pick-up van. Thank God the Inspector General of Police is handling the case personally. This may bring some comfort to his grieving family and widow.
9. Dana Air/ First Lady Patience Johnathan’s Ailing Health:
After the June 3, 2012 crash which killed 153 passengers on board and 15 on ground, Dana Air’s license was suspended. The Aviation Ministry later lifted the airline’s suspension in September, 2012 when insurance and compensations were yet to be paid to the victims families, it caused a national outrage and petitions were drawn and signed by many Nigerians to take Dana Air off our airspace.
Also, speculations were rife as to the cause of her illness. They ranged from Food Poisoning to a ruptured Appendix and the latest being Parkinson’s Disease. What drew public interest to this story was the whole issue being shrouded in secrecy.
Whatever be the case, I wish her a speedy recovery.
10. The 15 Year Old Pupil Who Ran Away With Her 30 Year Old Maths Teacher:
This story caused an outrage in the UK where it happened. 15 year old Megan Stammers ran away with her 30 year old teacher Jeremy Forrest.
This made furious parents at their school, Bishop Bell C of E School in Eastbourne, Sussex, to demand a full inquiry into the apparent lapse in child protection and accused senior staff at the school of letting pupils down.
Parents, please protect your innocent children. Do the best you can for them. With Paedophiles roaming everywhere, it is important for parents to shield their children from these dangers.
